What It Is
Favorite books come to life in the Tales to Play line of games based on classic children's books. The games come in packaging that resembles a big book, and each game includes 3-D accessories and pawns in the shape of favorite characters.
The Little Engine That Could Game brings the story to life with brightly colored train engines and a large hill for the trains to climb. Each player draws cards and moves their train toward the hill, up the hill, and then down the hill, chanting "I think I can! I think I can!" on each move. The first player to speed their engine down the hill gets the first place ticket. The second player gets the second place ticket, and so on. Each ticket has a point value. After a player's engine goes down the hill, it will land on one of four spaces: clown, girls, toys, or animals. Take the corresponding toy chip to score more points. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. The Little Engine That Could Game comes with four engine pawns, 30 cards, four tickets, 12 toy chips, five hill pieces, and a game board.
